Words of Re-enchantment: Storytelling, Myth, and Ecological Desire
The time-honoured art of storytelling - ancestor of all narrative media - is finding new
pathways of relevance in education, consciousness-raising, and the journey of
transformation. Storytellers are reinterpreting ancient myths and communicating the new
stories we need in our challenging times. This book brings together the best of Anthony
Nansonís incisive writings about the ways that story can re-enchant our lives and the
world we live in. Grounded in his practice as a storyteller, the essays range from the
myths of Arthur, Arcadia, and the voyage west, to true tales of the past, science-fiction
visions of the future, and the big questions of politics and spirituality such stories raise.
The book contains full texts of exemplar stories and will stimulate the thinking of anyone
interested in storytelling or in the use of myth in fiction and film.
